About Michael Majeed Skills
Michael Majeed says he owes much of his success to his relationship-building skills, which he’s honed during his twenty-plus years as a business professional.
He advises people on not only tax matters but also on business growth. Positioning himself as a trusted and valued business partner, Michael functions as a staff leader who, although he isn’t a formal member of management, acts as he’s a part of the team. Whether he is counseling a startup on how to finance an emerging business or helping a corporate entity add the right people to their workforce as they prepare for expansion, Michael’s clients know that their success is his top priority.
Michael also says that building relationships is what has helped him transition from financial representative to advisor to what his clients consider an expert in business administration and management over his career. Like many in his industry, he started out in banking. That’s where he says he realized that a major key to success was in the form of getting to know people and forming productive professional relationships with them.
Michael lives by the old axiom that people buy from or work with people. He says that while companies do business with each other, it’s really the people at those companies who are interacting on a daily basis. In relationship-building it’s important to continually let your clients know that you’re looking out for them. This means clear, honest, ongoing communication so you stay top-of-mind.
He says that although he is by career a “numbers guy,” he wouldn’t have achieved the tremendous success he’s enjoyed, nor would he have had the opportunity to help so many Canadian companies grow and improve their financial performance without having developed excellent relationship-building skills. Ultimately, Michael says in order to be successful in business, you need to be able to interact continually with all types of people.
